Ride for a Cure: Announcing the Parkway Pedal Ride for Autism

This September, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage will introduce a new event, the Parkway Pedal Ride for Autism. Utah has one of the highest rates of autism in the nation, as one in every 46 children born in Utah is diagnosed somewhere on the spectrum. Coldwell Banker Community Foundation would like to be part of the solution so it has partnered with the Autism Council of Utah (ACU) in hopes of raising money and awareness for this condition.

The Parkway Pedal is a casual, non-competitive bike ride along the Legacy Parkway and Jordan River Parkway trails. All proceeds will go directly to the ACU to help provide resources, research and information for individuals of all ages who have or are affected by autism or related conditions.

The ride will start and finish at the Utah Culture Celebration Center at 1355 West 3100 South. Participants can choose from routes that vary in length ideal for beginners to the most experienced riders. After the race, there will be music, food trucks, games, and festivities centered on family fun. For times and routes, click here.

Don’t want to ride? There are plenty of volunteer opportunities available – please contact Coldwell Banker to learn more. Or, join Coldwell Banker at the Culture Center for the activities after the race.

The Autism Council of Utah (ACU) is an independent council working to foster collaboration, communication, and learning among families and agencies. They promote access to resources and responsible information for individuals of all ages who have, or are affected by autism, or related conditions. The community is in dire need of assistance and funding to help these families cope with the challenge of having an autistic child and Coldwell Banker is proud to partner with such a vital organization.

The Coldwell Banker Community Foundation is committed to giving back to the people of the state of Utah and supporting those who are looking to make a positive impact in society. The Parkway Pedal is one of three fundraising events that the Coldwell Banker Community Foundation hosts each year. Most recently, the Foundation hosted a Charity Golf Tournament.

Coldwell Banker hopes you will join the ride in September!
